About OVIVIEW

OVIVIEW is a Greek startup founded in December 2014 by Asterios (Aris) Kritikos. Observing the difficulties and the complications of the job application process, as an applicant himself, Aris originally thought about OVIVIEW while he was still a postgraduate student at the University of Warwick.

Few years later, after graduating the Accelerator of Founder Institute, Silicon Valley, US (2015), and winning the first place at the “John and Mary Pappajohn Business Plan Awards” in 2017, OVIVIEW is an actual enterprise located in Thessaloníki, Northern Greece. Launching the platform in March 2018 and having shared the vision with partners and an exceptional team of professionals, Aris managed to build the structure for something that aims to change the traditional hiring methods!

OVIVIEW helps numerous companies around the world by offering them the innovative advantage of Video Interviewing (Video-CVs), a business software that alternates the hiring procedures and digitalises all recruiting processes!

Our mission is to connect people, no matter the distance or the time and we can assure you that this is achieved by upholding the highest integrity standards, using an ethically made AI and following every detail of the GDPR policy.
